I CAN WE CAN is a socially engaged art project created by A Window Between Worlds in order to strengthen, connect and expand the community of individuals united to end domestic violence and sexual assault. This ongoing participatory art project invites everyone to create art as a symbol of solidarity, a commitment to doing what they can to help end abuse. Our shared vision is a world in which art is used to forge a sense of personal connection and shared responsibility to say WE CAN create a violence-free future.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, one in four women will be the victim of domestic violence at some point in her lifetime, and on average, three women are killed every day at the hands of a current or former intimate partner.

The economic downturn is having a devastating effect on local programs working to serve survivors of abuse. While a bad economy does not cause domestic violence, it can make it worse. At the same time, there are fewer options for survivors to escape. According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, 82 percent of local programs saw an increase the demand for their services, while 77 percent reported a decrease in funding.

Throughout October, communities across the country will mourn for those whose lives were taken by domestic violence, celebrate the tremendous progress victim advocates have made over the years, and connect with one another with a true sense of unity to end domestic violence.
